The picture below shows a larger view of both sides of this Colorful Old St. Lawrence Seaway Commemorative Souvenir Empire Cigarette Lighter. This lighter is not dated but it is believed to be from 1959 or the early 1960s. One side pictures a cargo ship in one of the locks in Massina, New York. The other side has two ships in the Eisenhower Lock and the Robert Moses Dam.

It is marked on the two sides and the bottom as follows:

ST. LAWRENCE SEAWAY
MASSINA, N.Y.
EMPIRE

EISENHOWER LOCK
ROBERT MOSES DAM

EMPIRE
AUTOMATIC SUPER LIGHTER
JAPAN

The lighter measures 2-1/8'' x 1-3/4'' x 3/8''. It could use a cleaning, but it appears to be in good condition with some wear as pictured. We do not fill lighters with fluid because of the problem of mailing. We do not test any lighters. It appears to operate smoothly when the button is pushed. This lighter will require a wick, a flint, and fluid for use.

The Saint Lawrence Seaway (French: la Voie Maritime du Saint-Laurent) is the common name for a system of locks, canals and channels that permit ocean going vessels to travel from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes, as far inland as the western end of Lake Superior. The Seaway is named for the Saint Lawrence River, which flows from Lake Ontario to the Atlantic Ocean. Legally, the Seaway extends from Montreal, Quebec, to Lake Erie and includes the Welland Canal. This section upstream of the Seaway is not a continuous canal; rather, it consists of several stretches of navigable channels within the river, a number of locks, and canals along the banks of the St. Lawrence River to bypass several rapids and dams along the way. A number of the locks are managed by the Canadian Saint Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation, and others are managed by the American Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation, which together advertise the Seaway as part of ''Highway H2O''. The section of the river downstream of Montreal, which is fully within Canadian jurisdiction, is regulated by the offices of Transport Canada in the Port of Quebec.
